One of the foundational values of the Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office is Transparency. To help ensure the community that we serve is well-informed, this Office strives to give the media accurate, consistent and comprehensive information. The criminal system is complex. Please don't hesitate to ask if there is anything you may not understand about it. There are no dumb questions.
It is our goal to keep our community closely informed about high profile court cases, legal decisions, office policies and issues that weigh upon public safety in Santa Clara County. If you are a member of the working media and would like an interview with the District Attorney, or you need information on a certain case, would like to talk to a specific prosecutor, or are looking for an expert in a certain area of prosecution, please contact our Public Communications Officer Sean Webby at (408)792-2997, [email protected] or Public Information Officer Cynthia Sumida at (408)792- 2469, [email protected] Neither Webby, nor Sumida are "spokespeople." While we can confirm basic information, journalists should rely on prosecutors for quotes and comprehensive information about their cases.
